Research

The Tarragona Denominació d'Origen has several lines of work underway to reinforce the quality of its products, as well as to guarantee the DO's wine-growing future. The most important is to work with the Macabeu variety, the variety sponsored by the DO Tarragona and which is the spearhead of the DO.

Within this strategy, let us not forget adaptation to climate change, which is also one of the objectives of our studies to give tools to winegrowers and wineries to adapt to the new conditions caused by climate change, and thus achieve better profitability, both for the grapes and the wine obtained.
